Yes, necessity mothers most inventions—particularly ones of the space-saving variety. But in the case of Infusion Furniture’s expanding Transformer Table, it wasn’t just a reaction to cramped corners. As is so often in the case in the better areas of design, the creation of the piece from Quentin Kelley’s Boston-based practice, it was the response to a client’s brief that started the gears turning.
“We developed this piece for a client with a very specific vision of a convertible table,” says Kelley. “She didn’t have a space for a dedicated dining table in her South End condo, but hosted dinner parties often.” He continues, “She also wanted a narrow footprint when the table was closed and against the wall. Other tables didn’t offer the narrow footprint and range of expansion required.”
